Category Theory for the Sciences
by

Publisher: The MIT Press
ISBN-13: 9780262320511
Number of pages: 496

Description:
This book shows that category theory can be useful outside of mathematics as a rigorous, flexible, and coherent modeling language throughout the sciences. Written in an engaging and straightforward style, and assuming little background in mathematics, the book is rigorous but accessible to non-mathematicians.
